    Cool small things you've found in Beta that others haven't

    *Well, maybe haven't*

    I keep finding small things outside the main path that I've missed on previous runs.

    Example:

    -Warriv's corpse and journal... poor chap :(
    -A keepsake box in the ruins of tristram. Some woman's journal, talking about Leoric's dumb move to start a war against a neighbour. Btw, who is this woman, any ideas?
    -Leoric's journal #2 (I've normally only found 1), talking about random household stuff... a bit funny, considering what happened

    Any others you guys found that others might have missed? Journals, superuniques, events, etc, that you don't find normally but need to get lucky and look hard for?

    Probably the black mushroom that can be found near Adria's hunt. Nice little bit of diablo nostalgia.

    I've run into an Elite named Dataminer in one of the Defiled Crypts, which made me smile. I'm probably not the only one who found him though.

    JCBN so this is Gillian's journal, you think? I mean the one that comes from Keepsake box? I checked in D3 wiki, but that's not the one I found. It was named "Old Tristram journal", here's the text:

    "The rumors of torture and worse grow every day. What has happened to Tristram and its king? I once thought Leoric a great man, but it seems I was deceived. We all were. He sends our meager army against Westmarch on the morrow. What will become of us?"


    I found bishibob's corpse and anvil too, never seen the mushroom - will take a look next time I play! Nice finds!

    As for Dataminer, what was the mob's type? I'm going to check every nook next time I'm there :)

    By Bishibob you guys mean Bishibosh, right? Where can I find his corpse? I assume it's somewhere in the Den of the Fallen.

    It doesn't always spawn, but when it does it's north-east from Adria's Hut.

    I believe it was a ghostly gravedigger, but I'm not sure. I do remember, that he didn't have any minions with him.

    Yes, and Den of the Fallen is a rare event in itself. I've seen it twice in about 10x runs. So it's a rare container inside a rare event!

    Yeah in the Den of the Fallen, Shaman corpses there, and one of them is Bishi... ;)

    Also a unique Digger O' Dell gravedigger, which i managed to take screenshot of, because his text was so fun...

    About Gilliant, it says her name on the journal, i am aware there is another female journal also, and lots of men... :)

    Yep, pretty much. Just imagine how many little things like these will be in the final game. The content in the beta is really small and yet there's so many things to find if you're looking.

    This! I looooooove how D3 is becoming ridiculously replayable with randomized dungeons, events, superuniques and lore bits.

    I can only agree with this.
    I hope they continue down this path, all the way to the end.

    Old, was added in patch 5 or 4
    That's not the only one, there's a total of like 5 or 6.
    Old added in patch 5 as well.
    - This is also very old but Leah and Cain have journals in their respective rooms. Currently Leah has 3 and Cain 2 but he used to have a 3rd one which became available after you killed the Skeleton King. This 3rd journal was removed in patch 8 or 9.
    - The barkeep used to sell 2 little buff elixirs. One gave you increased stamina regen (5% I think) and the other gave you 5% attack (before they removed the "attack" stat). This is as old as the FnF build and was removed in patch 5.
    - Oh yeah, pre-redesign demon hunters were completely useless (patch 3 or 4, can't remember which). The only thing they were good for was breaking barrels and vases with fan of knives.
    - Blacksmith recipes and passive skills were not introduced until patch 4.
    - The Anvil of Fury in old Tristram used to drop a legendary level 2 Griswold's Edge sword. It was the perfect leveling weapon and a very easy way to make money due to its high drop rate. All you had to do was keep creating new games and take the waypoint. There was a 1/3 chance of the anvil spawning and every time it spawned you would get the sword. I had a nice collection of perfect stat ones of each kind of elemental damage (poison, eletricity, fire, cold, arcane, holy).

    So is Griswold's Edge out of the current build?

    It was nerfed to being a crappy blue with much lower stats and much lower drop rate 5 or so patches ago. I haven't bothered to try and get one since that happened.

    There are also a bunch of low-level unique mobs kind of like Dataminer in various cathedral areas. Unlike other rares, they spawn without minion packs.

    There are a few different named mobs that rarely emerge from the Cathedral Garden. There's Llogor the Crazed, an homage to Zhar the Mad, I think. Captain Cage is a unique skeleton--there's also a unique grotesque. Firestarter is a unique carrion bat, and I think is the only mob remaining in the beta that's molten-enchanted. (But the game doesn't tell you this, I just noticed because I saw the molten animation hurt me a bit.) There are probably other rare-spawn uniques that I'm forgetting, but I feel like I've run into a bunch of them. I just regret I was overleveled so they were giant pushovers, and if I wasn't paying attention I may have killed them without noticing their special names/properties.

    Speaking of bosses, where did Molted and Arcane and Poison-enchanted packs go? I've joined the fun way too late :(
